Research Assistant in Berkeley, CA
on May 9, 2022
Working at a research laboratory at UC Berkeley as an undergraduate research assistant was an enjoyable learning experience. Overall, it challenged me to understand the literature and perform experiments effectively.
manager in RSSP
on May 1, 2022
I had one of the most negative work experiences of my career. Despite a lot of resources available to employees for assistance, there is rarely any action. The "employee relations" department does more harm than good and departmental HR is completely understaffed. If you're in middle management you get very little support and spend most of the time fending off attacks from both sides: employees and management. The poorest performance from employees I have ever seen- sleeping on the job, just leaving for a few hours, and some would not report to work for MONTHS- yet your tax dollars continue to pay them. The benefits are good but not great and wages are not comparable to private companies. Really changed my perspective on the University as an institution.
Admissions Evaluator 3 in Berkeley, CA

the hardest part of the job was time management and keeping pace, but this was only because I was also working a full time job and going to grad school at the same time. If not for that, it would be a walk in the park. I gained a lot of insight about the holistic college application review process, which I think is great. Other institutions should use the same approach.
Postdoctoral Scholar in Berkeley, CA

Great place for postdoctoral training with lots of resources and many brilliant people to work and network with. The only cons are the low and expensive rent rates in the bay area.
Administrative Assistant in 1608 4th st. Berkeley CA
on January 26, 2022
So many unhelpful and unprofessional staff. Disorganized and doesn't care for the staff as they should, treat employees as replaceable. Constant lay offs, and people leaving due to unfair or unmanageable work loads. Definitely do not recommend working here.

Interview Questions

I interviewed for 2 separate positions. They ask a set number of questions pulled likely from their database of interview questions In this position you will work with many audiences… ..students ….staff…. .faculty ….. and directors. How do you balance the varying needs and issues of these groups? Can you describe a challenging or significant issue or project you worked on where collaboration with faculty or administrators was essential? What is your level of proficiency with computer systems, campus and other, software and hardware? What training on financial and/or human resource systems have you taken within the last few years? Share a situation where you had to make and or implement a (non-personnel) decision that did not please everyone. How did you handle it, what was the outcome, and how did the effected parties feel?
